Four Thumbs Up

Well, I spent my annual cinema budget last night.  My wife and I invited our pastor (the Vagabond Professor) and his wife to see “The Boy in Striped Pajamas” with us.  The movie was very well done and very moving.  I don’t know if you can say a movie about a concentration camp and the holocaust is enjoyable, but we all agreed it is an important film–up there with Schindler’s list–and worth seeing.  The Vagabond Professor provides his own review and reflections at his site.

Loren, from the German Stammtish, where I go to practice my smiling and nodding skills, recommends the film “The Boy in Striped Pajamas.”

It is about an 8-year-old boy Bruno, the son of a Nazi officer who befriends a Jewish boy he meets across the fence that keeps Shmu’el inside a concentration camp.  It has been compared to “Schindler’s List” and other similar films.

I try to go to the theater at least once a year and see a real movie the old fashioned way.  Well, the year is running out . . .

Do you think this should be my movie for this year?

Has anyone else seen it?
